Nintendo keeps you guessing with its "Excite" line, that's for sure. The original motocross based Excitebike came out for the Nintendo Entertainment System all the way back in 1984. Not until some years later with Excitebike 64, the 3D sequel for the Nintendo 64, did we even see signs of it being a series. And then, when it finally showed up again at the launch of the Wii, it was in the form of the arcadey off road truck racer Excite Truck. ExciteBots Trick Racing furthers the confusion with its transforming robot critters for racers, but its continuation (and advancement) of the racing and stunts mechanics help solidify an identity for the franchise.
